Look man, I really dig '87 because sometimes I DON'T have the time for 38 mins of Dark Star at Rotterdam. But, I need my Dead fix. It's also part of the reason why I listen to so much '71. I never use words like "greatest" or "best ever" I just know what I like. If it opens the "forum gods" to besmirch me, then fine. Whatever man. Music, like food and baseball are subjective things and I will never diss someone for their tastes. Rock on with your bad self, but do me a favor and stick to the music. Isn't that why we are all here?

i hear ya on the song length aspect. ever since i stopped listening to the dead for the last 19 hours, i've realized how much more music i'm able to listen to in the same amount of time. i can practically listen to a whole album, in place of one version of dark star!

"Rock on with your bad self, but do me a favor and stick to the music. Isn't that why we are all here?"

unfortunately, many seem to be here for everything but the music. i'm surely not one of them, as i'm sure you've seen me preach to some of those people by now. i do get sidetracked at times, but 99% of the reason i'm here is for the music.

I preach to no one. Look, if '69 is your gig, or '77 or even 1994 I don't judge. Personally, I love all years and if you get a chance check out 3/27/94. It may not be your cup of tea but I dig it. The thing I love about the Grateful Dead, is that is a life long undertaking and whatever you like, is what you like. Once again, I never use the adjectives "greatest" or "best ever" we like what we like. It's all personal.

A side note, I really love the 1st set from 11/1/85, but then again I love 2/2/68. Does it really matter? My favorite show is the one I am listening to at the time. The Grateful Dead is like a Picasso painting, you dig it or you don't
